WOYWW 219


Welcome to my new follower - hello Evalila!!

We're back on another WOYWW and today on my little work trays there are pretty flowers everywhere!  I'd seen something on a blog about making faux stained glass and as you saw my beautiful church stained glass I thought I'd have a go and here are the results.  I used this flower as I didn't want anything complicated for my first effort!
After cutting the flower I stuck some vellum on the reverse side and then coloured it with my Promarkers.  My first effort went wrong when I decided to add some more colour onto it and it turned into a river with splodges everywhere. I corrected this by just rubbing it with a tissue. Voila!  All done!  You'll see the finished card soon!

Being a crafter, I decided to use the cut out parts of the flower to make another card for my charity box of cards.  I actually made two out of them and you can see one idea in the first photo.  I seem to never do one thing at a time, and usually have at least a couple on the work trays!

Enjoy!

Wow, love that stained glass effect...and I think a simple design probably works best too. Wonder what other designs you'll come up with?
Thanks for my lovely card, Karen, it really was much appreciated :-)
Hugs, LLJ 60 xx

Hi Karen, your flower is lovely and definitely has that stained glass look about it. Pretty colours too. One project often leads to another, I find, it's surely inevitable with lovely stash on the workdesk. Have a great week, Elizabeth x #61

Lovely effect, Karen. Really delicate. Well done. Have fun doing more designs.
Thanks for visiting - yes, when the piece is finished I will post a picture. I'll also, eventually, put up the advent calendar which is a long term project - but I'm nearly there now!!
Have a great week.

I love this. I've always wanted to create something that resembled stained glass. I must try something like this. Julie Ann xx #39

What a clever way to waste not, want not. And the stained glass effect is gorgeous. Very nicely done.

Thanks for stopping by earlier, and Bleubeard wants to kiss your icon/avatar (grin). Happy WOYWW from #1.
